What’s New Behind the Doors? Your Whirlpool® French Door Refrigerator comes equipped with various innovative storage and energy efficient features. Energy and Normal Operating Sounds

Water Filter

Your new French Door Bottom Mount refrigerator has been designed to optimize energy efficiency, and better regulate temperatures to match cooling demand. You may notice that it operates differently from your previously owned refrigerator. It is normal for the high-efficiency compressor to run for extended periods of time at varying speeds in order to consume only the energy necessary for optimum efficiency. In addition, during various stages of the cooling cycle, you may hear normal operating sounds that are unfamiliar to you.

NSF® Certified filter reduces chlorine taste and odor, particulates (class I), lead, and mercury. Replacing the water filter every 6 months ensures clean, filtered drinking water.

More Storage Space The French Door Bottom Mount has the most fresh food storage space available, including a full-width, temperature controlled, pantry drawer perfect for storing veggie trays or party platters.

In-Door-Ice® Ice Dispensing System The ice storage bin located in the door provides an entire extra shelf of storage space, and the storage bin is removable for easy access to filtered ice.

Dual Evaporator (on some models) The refrigerator and freezer compartments have dedicated evaporators to provide fresh and frozen foods with separate climates. Frozen food stays cold and dry, while fresh food remains at the ideal temperature and humidity.

Air Filter An air filter is 15 times more powerful than baking soda at reducing common food odors inside the refrigerator.

Produce Preserver (on some models) Ethylene is a natural gas produced by fruits and vegetables to promote ripening. The Produce Preserver absorbs ethylene, to delay the over-ripening of fresh produce. As a result, certain produce items will stay fresh longer.

CoolVox® Kitchen Sound System (on some models) We made the kitchen pulse with energy by adding music where it’s never been before. The CoolVox® kitchen sound system pairs easily with smart phones, tablets or other Bluetooth®† mobile devices.

Water Dispenser with Measured Fill (on some models) The measured fill feature allows you to dispense the desired amount of filtered water.

†®BLUETOOTH is a registered trademark of Bluetooth SIG, Inc.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Electrical Requirements Recommended Grounding Method

WARNING

Electrical Shock Hazard Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

A 115 volt, 60 Hz, AC only 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded electrical supply is required. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only your refrigerator and approved accessories be provided. Use an outlet that cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an extension cord. NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning, or removing a light bulb, turn OFF Cooling, and then disconnect the refrigerator from the electrical source. When you have finished, reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical source and turn ON Cooling. See “Using the Control(s).”

Do not remove ground prong. Do not use an adapter. Do not use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock. Before you move your refrigerator into its final location, it is important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection.

Water Supply Requirements A cold water supply with water pressure between 35 and 120 psi (241 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the water dispenser and ice maker. If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber. NOTE: If the water pressure is less than what is required, the flow of water from the water dispenser could decrease or ice cubes could be hollow or irregular shaped.

If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa). ■ Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary. ■

Reverse Osmosis Water Supply IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water supply coming out of a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the refrigerator needs to be between 35 and 120 psi (241 and 827 kPa).

Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill after heavy use. The tank capacity could be too small to keep up with the requirements of the refrigerator. NOTE: Faucet-mounted reverse osmosis systems are not recommended.



If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may further reduce the water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system. Remove the water filter. See “Water Filtration System.”

If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber.

11

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Connect the Water Supply Read all directions before you begin. IMPORTANT: ■ Plumbing shall be installed in accordance with the International Plumbing Code and any local codes and ordinances. The gray water tubing on the back of the refrigerator (which is used to connect to the household water line) is a PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) tube. Copper and PEX tubing connections from the household water line to the refrigerator are acceptable, and will help avoid off-taste or odor in your ice or water. Check for leaks.



If PEX tubing is used instead of copper, we recommend the following Part Numbers: W10505928RP (7 ft [2.14 m] jacketed PEX), 8212547RP (5 ft [1.52 m] PEX), or W10267701RP (25 ft [7.62 m] PEX). Install tubing only in areas where temperatures will remain above freezing.



Tools Needed: Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation. ■ Flat-blade screwdriver ■

⁷⁄₁₆" and ¹⁄₂" open-end wrenches or two adjustable wrenches



¹⁄₄" nut driver

NOTE: Do not use a piercing-type or ³⁄₁₆" (4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs easier.



Ensure that you have the proper length needed for the job. Be sure both ends of the copper tubing are cut square.



Slip compression sleeve and compression nut onto copper tubing as shown. Insert end of tubing into outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw compression nut onto outlet end with adjustable wrench. Do not overtighten.

5. Place the free end of the tubing into a container or sink, and turn on main water supply to flush out tubing until water is clear. Turn off shutoff valve on the water pipe. NOTE: Always drain the water line before making the final connection to the inlet of the water valve, to avoid possible water valve malfunction. 6. Bend the copper tubing to meet the water line inlet, which is located on the back of the refrigerator cabinet as shown. Leave a coil of copper tubing to allow the refrigerator to be pulled out of the cabinet or away from the wall for service.

Connect to Refrigerator Follow the connection instructions specific to your model.

Connect to Water Line IMPORTANT: If you turn the refrigerator on before the water is connected, turn OFF the ice maker. 1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power. 2. Turn OFF main water supply. Turn ON nearest faucet long enough to clear line of water. 3. Use a quarter-turn shutoff valve or the equivalent, served by a ¹⁄₂" household supply line. NOTE: To allow sufficient water flow to the refrigerator, a minimum ¹⁄₂" (12.7 mm) size household supply line is recommended.

Style 1 1. Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet port. Attach the copper tube to the valve inlet using a compression nut and sleeve, as shown. Tighten the compression nut. Do not overtighten. Confirm copper tubing is secure by pulling on copper tubing. 2. Create a service loop with the copper tubing. Avoid kinks when coiling the copper tubing. Secure copper tubing to refrigerator cabinet with a “P” clamp.

Sensitivity to Ethylene

Installing the Produce Preserver

IRRITANT

The produce preserver absorbs ethylene, to slow the ripening process of many produce items. As a result, certain produce items will stay fresh longer. Ethylene production and sensitivity varies depending on the type of fruit or vegetable. To preserve freshness, it is best to separate produce with sensitivity to ethylene from fruits that produce moderate to high amounts of ethylene.

REFRIGERATOR USE Water and Ice Dispensers IMPORTANT: ■ Allow 3 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill water. ■

Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the first three batches of ice produced.



The dispensing system will not operate when either the refrigerator door or freezer drawer is open.

The Water Dispenser IMPORTANT: ■ Dispense at least 1 qt (1 L) of water every week to maintain a fresh supply. ■

Flush the Water System Air in the water dispensing system can cause the water dispenser to drip. After connecting the refrigerator to a water source or replacing the water filter, flush the water system. Flushing the water dispensing system forces air from the water line and filter and prepares the water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some households. NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of the dispenser. 1. Using a sturdy container, depress and hold the water dispenser paddle for 5 seconds. 2. Release the dispenser paddle for 5 seconds. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until water begins to flow. 3. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser pad (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has been dispensed.



With the water filter removed, dispense 1 cup (237 mL) of water. If 1 cup (237 mL) of water is dispensed in 8 seconds or less, the water pressure to the refrigerator meets the minimum requirement.



If it takes longer than 8 seconds to dispense 1 cup (237 mL) of water, the water pressure to the refrigerator is lower than recommended. See “Water Supply Requirements” and “Problem Solver” or “Troubleshooting” for suggestions.

To Dispense Water: 1. Select water. 2. Press a sturdy glass against the dispenser paddle. NOTE: While dispensing water and for 3 seconds after dispensing has stopped, the digital display will show how much water has been dispensed. 3. Remove the glass to stop dispensing.

The Ice Dispenser

Dispensing Press ICE/WATER to toggle through the following choices in a continuous loop: ■ Water (default) - Dispenses water ■

Cubed - Dispenses cubed ice



Crushed - Dispenses crushed ice

IMPORTANT: ■ If the ice cubes are hollow or have an irregular shape, it could be because of low water pressure. See “Water Supply Requirements.” ■

NOTES: ■

The word “ICE” appears on the display screen when either crushed or cubed ice is selected.



For crushed ice, cubes are crushed before being dispensed. This may cause a slight delay when dispensing crushed ice. Noise from the ice crusher is normal, and pieces of ice may vary in size.



When changing from crushed to cubed, a few ounces of crushed ice will be dispensed along with the first cubes.

Crushed

Ice travels from the ice storage bin through the dispenser chute to the dispenser. To turn off the ice maker, see “Ice Maker and Storage Bin.”

To Clean the Ice Dispenser Chute: Humidity causes ice to naturally clump together. Ice particles can build up until the ice dispenser chute becomes blocked. If ice is not dispensed regularly, it may be necessary to empty the ice storage bin and clean the ice delivery chute, the ice storage bin and the area beneath the storage bin every 2 weeks. ■ Remove the ice clogging the storage bin and delivery chute, using a plastic utensil if necessary. ■

Water

If the flow of water from the dispenser decreases, it could be caused by low water pressure.

Clean the ice delivery chute and the bottom of the ice storage bin using a warm, damp cloth, then dry thoroughly.

Cubed

Ice Maker and Ice Storage Bin

(on some models)

IMPORTANT: To avoid low ice production and poor quality ice, flush the water system before turning on the ice maker. See “Water Dispenser.” ■ Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the first three batches of ice produced. Allow 2 to 3 days for the storage bin to fill completely following installation. ■

24

The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals (such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided, make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well maintained.



If the ice in the storage bin clumps together, break up ice using a plastic utensil and discard. Do not use anything sharp to break up the ice. This can cause damage to the ice bin and the dispenser mechanism.



Do not store anything in the ice storage bin.

Ice Production Rate ■
